Joost Emmerik (°1979) is a garden and landscape architect. Trained as an architect and urban designer at Technical University Delft in The Netherlands, he works as a designer and researcher of outdoor spaces.

A firm belief in the evoking power of gardens and a need for them in this day and age form the basis of his work. Joost searches for a serene simplicity, combining clear lines, robust materials and luscious planting into places that grow more exuberant over time. 

The garden as a world in itself, equal to the house. The garden as a room, not belonging to mankind, but to nature.

Joost is visiting lecturer at Technical University Delft, the Academy of Architecture Amsterdam, the Academy of Architecture Rotterdam and member of the Talent Building Committee of the Creative Industries Fund.
